I love the scores posted. Makes me a little homesick for a good old fashioned western.

Wow! Brings back so many good memories. I love Westerns. Thank you for posting these.

:harp: :heaven:

We did a halftime show when I was in college (late '60s) based on the music of “The Other Bernstein.”

Love it.


Wow, I even almost forgot about “The Big County” Score. What a great piece.:thumbsup:

Well saddle up boys! Ahh…Er Ladies!:tiphat:

You would *never *have put the “Bonanza” intro on your list had you heard the original. You cannot imagine the aspect of Lorne Greene, Michael Landon, Pernell Roberts and Dan Blocker singing the lyrics written for the piece. Thank God and all that is holy that it was aired only once.

But what you missed was “The Cowboys” starring John Wayne, Bruce Dern, et al.


You mean this one, not sure if this was the original, you are referring to?

Still trying to find a good YouTube of “The Cowboys” Theme:D

High Noon ballad - sung by Tex Ritter, music composed by Dimitri Tiomkin, lyrics Ned Washington

Thanks Sarah, great ballad and black & white Classic Western.:thumbsup:

Drafdog, This is the best YouTube of “The Cowboys” score I could find, and it is pretty good, if you find anything else let us know.

Will add these to the list.

The Alamo Score.

The Green Berets - Ballad
